As for the 4th question you do it in 2 seasons assuming our run is net year.
1) Most other teams when they "go for it" add 3 or 4 players.
2) 2 or 3 second round picks.
3) We have 5 second round picks.
4) If you need the picks now, you can't wait 2 seasons.

Believe me I've looked! They're going to be in a lot of trouble at the deadline next year. The Ice Dogs, with those players still returning, will be pretty good team next year, but not quite good enough to win it all, without adding some players - and that's not going to happen now.

Have you looked at the database they donít need them now sure thatís what most other teams need but what if the East is brutal next year and they can get away with only adding 1 or 2 not likely but possible and Iím impressed you look the third answer up all by yourself

The management did what they did today and who knows what will happen between now and noon tomorrow,
They have a game plan set and I am more than curious to see the results.

We are doing a lot of speculation here, but, the have the information, scouting, etc. to implement their plan.

There is something hidden behind the curtain that we are not aware of.

I totally agree. Even before I read that he would play with Thomas I felt this was all about helping Akil. He is a great player - but has not had the season he did last year. I remain unconvinced he is a Centre and think he should be the other winger with Jones and Maksimov. Playing Centre is not his strength. His face-off stats are OK - but I believe he thinks and plays like a winger.

Interesting that Maksimov has got better being with a natural "pass first, shoot 2nd" player like Jones. Maksimov and Akil did not work. It will be fascinating to see how Militec and Thomas work out. I wonder whether it may be better (if Joey and Billy want his stats padded) whetehr they would be better going 2nd line as Thomas and Militec as the wingers and bring in Philip as the 2nd centre.

Interesting times ahead.

But I have a horrible feeling that giving up all those picks will bite us next year. I think we got better this year - and won't be as good as we could be next. But hey, I am just an armchair GM...

You donít know that they wonít be able to add so please stop pretending you do Joey and company know what they are doing and this team is third without Miletic so they might not need to add as many guys as people think

Yes, you are right I don't really know what's going on behind closed doors, but Foghorn explanation seems makes a lot of sense...

That would great and one never knows what the future will hold.

I have heard this staff say many times, that they would not make a move just to make a move. If a move now would hurt their future or next year, there would not be a deal to be made.
